If Rajib can get into the top 10 place in the ongoing VI Asian Championship, he will be a participant of World Chess Cup 2007. I think he has a good chance.

Zia will play against GM Dmitry Jakovenko of Russia. The country's national team player Jakovenko's current rating is 2710 while Rajib will play against GM Pavel Eljanov of Ukraine. Eljanov, also of the Ukraine national team, has a rating of 2691.

A total of 128 top-level players from all over the world will take part in the knockout first round.

World Chess C'ships
Zia, Rajib leave for Russia today
Source-DS (http://www.thedailystar.net/story.php?nid=12243)

The Bangladesh Chess team will leave Dhaka today to participate in the World Chess Champion-ships to be held in an icy Siberia, Russia.

Grand Master Ziaur Rahman and International Master Enamul Hossain Rajib will be accompanied by Latvian coach Igor Rousis in the trip to Khanty-Mansiysk where the championships start on November 24.

Zia (rating 2497), who got an entry by direct invitation of the FIDE president, will play Russian GM Dimitri Jakovenko (2710) -- the 19-th ranked player in the world, on the opening day in the first round.

Rajib (2514) who qualified after finishing among the top ten players of the VI Asian Individual Chess Championship held in Cebu City, Philippines last August, also faces a tough task, facing world number 26 Pavel Eljanov (2691) of Ukraine.

The players will face each other twice in the knockout rounds.

Not only high-ranked players, the Bangladeshi duo will face another adversary in the Siberian city, where the current temperature is running -10 degrees Celsius.

"It would be difficult for the Bangladeshi players to cope with the icy weather in Khanty-Mansiysk. We have trained for the games but the only preparation for the cold was to buy warm clothes from Bangabazar," told Rousis jovially yesterday.

The only previous time Bangladesh took part in the World Championships was in 1997.

Enamul drew with his opponent Pavel Eljanov from Ukraine with rating points 2691. This means that Enamul has a hope to go through this round if he can defeat his same opponent in tomorrow's match. At least he needs another drawn match to keep the hope alive. In that case he will need to win the tie breaking match in the next day.

Zia is defeated by his Russian opponents. So, in tomorrow's match Zia must win to keep hope to go through this round. Otherwise, he has to be back to the pavillion.

Rajib won the second match and through to the 2nd round :fire::fire::fire:

Rajib advances to second round of FIDE World Cup

DHAKA, Nov 25 (bdnews24.com) – Bangladesh's International Master Enamul Hossain Rajib moved to the second round of the FIDE World Cup Sunday after beating Ukrainian Grand Master Pavel Eljanov in Russia.

Rajib with white pieces took 61 moves to defeat Eljanov, the 26th ranking player in the world.

IM Rajib, who qualified for the World Cup finishing tenth in the 6th Asian Individual Chess Championship, Saturday drew with superior contender Eljanov despite having stayed in the winning position.

On the other hand, Bangladesh Grand Master Ziaur Rahman ended this year's World Cup Chess bid after losing again to Russian Dmitry Jakovenko, the 19th-ranking player in the world.

The second round of the World Cup will start November 27 in Khanty-Mansiysk in Russia.

#1: I'm sure this tournament will increase his rating points. As far as I know, to become a GM a player needs to obtain 3 GM norms and after obtaining these norms his rating point has to be at least 2500.

#2: If any players rating point reaches 2600 without achieving any norms he is qualified for a GM title. I might be wrong with this #2 requirements but I'm not sure. You can check it in details in this link (http://www.fide.com/official/handbook.asp?level=b0101).

As far as I know, Rajib has all the norms and fulfilled all the requirement for becoming a Grand Master. Due to some paper work and miscommunication, FIDE did not declare him as GM in their last meeting.

Anyway, Rajib's victory is a huge upset in the chess world. Also, I am pretty no Bangladeshi has ever beaten such a highly ranked player.

I didn't hear of anything about Rajib's GM norms but I think he didn't any have norms. If this is the case, he needs 3 norms. May be I'm wrong but I'm not sure.

Rajib has two GM norms. He narrowly missed the third norm in the sixth Asian championship where he became 10th and gained the privilege to play in the world cup.
